- 1 14 years of rising opioid deaths in Colorado REVERSED after marijuana was legalized
In this analysis, i will first look at the Data relative to the US’s health-care system’s results. (Section A). Subsequently, i will examine a few reasons why these health-care figures are bleak. (Section B).
The Hard Data on death: From 230 to 800,000 per year
Hundreds of thousands of Americans needlessly die from the flaws, deficiencies and abuses of mainstream allopathic medicine. There is no more doubt about this avoidable carnage, most mainstream experts say in between 250,000 to 400,000 Americans who die each year because of medical causes (Source)
and non mainstream experts estimate the number of medical deaths in between 700,000 and one million deaths each year. (Source). To further underline the volume of this dysfunction, consider a point regarding which all experts agree, that there is a lot of non reporting medical errors, these can cost doctors their license and salary, so often, they and hospitals prefer to hush this epidemic, all the more that they often are part of its process. ( )
Researchers found that more than one third of U.S. adults were prescribed the medications in 2015 and many also misused the drugs.
“A very large proportion and large number of adults use these medications in a given year,” said study author Dr. Wilson Compton, deputy director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse in Bethesda, Maryland. “I was still a bit surprised that 38 percent or about 92 million people used prescription opioids in 2015.”

Evidence of Conficts of Interests, Kickbacks and Corruption between Medical doctors and the Drug Industry
Drexel University confirms that a majority of patients in the United States visited a doctor who received payments from drug companies with 95 percent of them not knowing.
“About 65 percent of those surveyed as a part of the study by Genevieve Pham-Kanter, PhD, an assistant professor in Drexel’s Dornsife School of Public Health, visited a doctor within the last year who had received payments or gifts from pharmaceutical or medical device companies. What’s more: Only 5 percent of those surveyed knew that their doctor had received such payments.” (Source)
The more money doctors receive from drug and medical device companies, the more brand-name drugs they tend to prescribe, a new ProPublica analysis shows. (Source)
Between August 2013 to December 2015 Drug-Pharma producer Genetech, Inc. made payments totaling $727 million to doctors and research hospitals. (Source)
Dr. Dalbergue (pictured above), a former pharmaceutical industry physician with Gardasil manufacturer Merck, was interviewed in the April 2014 issue of the French magazine Principes de Santé (Health Principles). You can read it here (in French): http://ddata.over-blog.com/xxxyyy/3/27/09/71/2012-2013/Juin-2013/Dr-Dalbergue–Gardasil–plus-grand-scandale-de-tous-les-tem.pdf
The full extent of the Gardasil scandal needs to be assessed: everyone knew when this vaccine was released on the American market that it would prove to be worthless! Diane Harper, a major opinion leader in the United States, was one of the first to blow the whistle, pointing out the fraud and scam of it all.
Gardasil is useless and costs a fortune! In addition, decision-makers at all levels are aware of it!
Cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome, paralysis of the lower limbs, vaccine-induced MS and vaccine-induced encephalitis can be found, whatever the vaccine.
U.S. law prevents anyone from suing Merck or any other vaccine manufacturer as the U.S. Congress gave them total immunity from civil lawsuits in 1986, and that legal protection which gives them a free pass to put as many vaccines into the market as they want to, was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2011. In addition, the National Institute of Health receives royalties from the sales of Gardasil. So don’t expect objective, true information from the U.S. mainstream media, or your U.S. doctor.
But Merck does not have the same legal protection outside the U.S., and it is here we must find information regarding lawsuits over injuries and deaths related to Gardasil.
Starting Point of Awakening to the American Conventional Medical “Holocaust”
In 1999, the Institute of Medicine published the famous “To Err Is Human” report, which dropped a bombshell on the medical community by reporting that up to 98,000 people a year die because of mistakes in hospitals. The number was initially disputed, but is now widely accepted by doctors and hospital officials — and quoted ubiquitously in the media.
In 2010, the Office of Inspector General for the Department of Health and Human Services said that bad hospital care contributed to the deaths of 180,000 patients in Medicare alone in a given year.
Now comes a study in the current issue of the Journal of Patient Safety that says the numbers may be much higher — between 210,000 and 440,000 patients each year who go to the hospital for care suffer some type of preventable harm that contributes to their death.
A New, Evidence-based Estimate of Patient Harms Associated with Hospital Care
James, John T. PhD
Journal of Patient Safety: September 2013 – Volume 9 – Issue 3 – p 122–128
Objectives Based on 1984 data developed from reviews of medical records of patients treated in New York hospitals, the Institute of Medicine estimated that up to 98,000 Americans die each year from medical errors. The basis of this estimate is nearly 3 decades old; herein, an updated estimate is developed from modern studies published from 2008 to 2011.
Methods A literature review identified 4 limited studies that used primarily the Global Trigger Tool to flag specific evidence in medical records, such as medication stop orders or abnormal laboratory results, which point to an adverse event that may have harmed a patient. Ultimately, a physician must concur on the findings of an adverse event and then classify the severity of patient harm.
Results Using a weighted average of the 4 studies, a lower limit of 210,000 deaths per year was associated with preventable harm in hospitals. Given limitations in the search capability of the Global Trigger Tool and the incompleteness of medical records on which the Tool depends, the true number of premature deaths associated with preventable harm to patients was estimated at more than 400,000 per year. Serious harm seems to be 10- to 20-fold more common than lethal harm.
Conclusions The epidemic of patient harm in hospitals must be taken more seriously if it is to be curtailed. Fully engaging patients and their advocates during hospital care, systematically seeking the patients’ voice in identifying harms, transparent accountability for harm, and intentional correction of root causes of harm will be necessary to accomplish this goal.
“All men make mistakes, but a good man yields when he knows his course is wrong, and repairs the evil. The only crime is pride.”— Sophocles, Antigone”
Revelation 18:23, “… because all the nations were deceived by your pharmakeia”
sorcery (pharmakeia).” A key passage on this topic is found in 2 Thessalonians.
Medical care in the United States is technically complex at the individual provider level, at the system level, and at the national level. The amount of new knowledge generated each year by clinical research that applies directly to patient care can easily overwhelm the individual physician trying to optimize the care of his patients.1 Furthermore, the lack of a well-integrated and comprehensive continuing education system in the health professions is a major contributing factor to knowledge and performance deficiencies at the individual and system level.2 Guidelines for physicians to optimize patient care are quickly out of date and can be biased by those who write the guidelines.3–5 At the system level, hospitals struggle with staffing issues, making suitable technology available for patient care, and executing effective handoffs between shifts and also between inpatient and outpatient care.6 Increased production demands in cost-driven institutions may increase the risk of preventable adverse events (PAEs). The United States trails behind other developed nations in implementing electronic medical records for its citizens.7 Hence, the information a physician needs to optimize care of a patient is often unavailable.
There was much debate after the IOM report about the accuracy of its estimates. In a sense, it does not matter whether the deaths of 100,000, 200,000 or 400,000 Americans each year are associated with PAEs in hospitals. Any of the estimates demands assertive action on the part of providers, legislators, and people who will one day become patients. Yet, the action and progress on patient safety is frustratingly slow; however, one must hope that the present, evidence-based estimate of 400,000+ deaths per year will foster an outcry for overdue changes and increased vigilance in medical care to address the problem of harm to patients who come to a hospital seeking only to be healed.

14 years of rising opioid deaths in Colorado REVERSED after marijuana was legalized
As reported by Reason Magazine, since the legalized sale of recreational marijuana began in January 2014 after voters in the state approved a measure permitting it (recreational use still remains against federal law, however), the state has witnessed a 6.5 percent fall in opioid deaths.
Research published in the American Journal of Public Health revealed the findings, which are sure to animate advocates for wider legalization of recreational marijuana as well as those, perhaps, who are working to bring the current opioid epidemic under control.
“Legalization of cannabis in Colorado was associated with short-term reductions in opioid-related deaths. As additional data become available, research should replicate these analyses in other states with legal recreational cannabis,” the researchers concluded after studying and analyzing the opioid death rate in the state between 2000 – 2015.
“That suggestions yet another argument for marijuana legalization,” argued Reason, a libertarian publication that has long advocated for the issue. “Pot might stem and even reverse some of the trends unleashed by America’s decades-long drug war.”
Actually, one of the biggest causes of the current opioid epidemic is the modern medical system and Big Pharma. For years pharmaceutical firms have pushed the habit-forming pain medications and doctors over-prescribed them (like antibiotics) to the point where the federal government had to step in and regulate their sales.
Having said that, Reason does make this valid point: The federal government may well have also been complicit in the rise of the opioid epidemic, having stymied deeper research into the pain-killing qualities of marijuana.
That dearth of research, and the government’s inability to stave off the epidemic is probably what is driving President Donald J. Trump to continue the government’s “get tough” approach to controlling opioids, the magazine reported. The administration looks set to declare the epidemic a “national emergency,” which Reason believes will only worsen the problem:
A shift in attitudes can go a long way to combat opioid use in a way that strong-arms tactics never can.
Washington was the first state to outright legalize recreation marijuana use in 2012, but the first pot shops did not open until July 2014. Since that time recreational marijuana use has occurred in Alaska, Oregon, California, Nevada, Maine, and Massachusetts, and via the legislature in Vermont.
However, none of these states have as yet sold marijuana recreationally for as long as Colorado, but the effects of having easier access to legal marijuana on the opioid death rate has nevertheless been examined before. A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in October 2014 found that between 1999 and 2010, states with laws permitting the sale and use of marijuana for medical purposes had an almost 25 percent lower “mean annual opioid overdose mortality rate” than states that did not permit medical use of cannabis.
“Because chronic pain is a major indication for medical cannabis,” said those researchers, “laws that establish access to medical cannabis may change overdose mortality related opioid analgesics in states that have enacted them.”
The current opioid epidemic has been labeled the worst drug crisis in American history. The death rate is now rivaling that of the AIDS epidemic in the 1990s, with overdoses from opioid ingestion now killing some 27,000 people per year.
In fact, as Natural News founder/editor Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, has noted often, Big Pharma is the biggest killer of Americans each year than anything else. As for overdoses, they are now killing more Americans each year than automobiles. (Related: Keep track of Big Pharma-related deaths in real time at PharmaDeathClock.com.)

The entire medical system seems to be designed around profit. There is the economic kind of profiting, and beyond that there is a profiting through the advancement of darker agendas.
Is there any Merit in the Bible’s characterization of pharmaceutical medicine as Sorcellerie ?
“All men make mistakes, but a good man yields when he knows his course is wrong, and repairs the evil. The only crime is pride.”— Sophocles, Antigone”
Revelation 18:23, “… because all the nations were deceived by your pharmakei
Because the majority of politicians who became lawmakers make sure to have a legal system that either outcasts holistic medicine and make it non reimbursable by insurance plans while promoting allopathic drugs and hi-tech procedures and because there is an inverse proportion relationship between costs and efficiency regarding these three forms of cancer medicine, I need to say a word about Biblical versus Satanical Medicine
Since the Start of Biblical recorded History, the pharmaceutical sector of the economy has been called, multiple times, “witch-craft “, “sorcellerie” and “Satanical”.
The words “pharmacy” and “pharmaceutical” are derived from the Greek word, pharmakeia (Strong’s G5331). This word is found in the Bible in the following passages of scripture.
19 Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality, 20 idolatry, sorcery (pharmakeia), enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions, 21 envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. Galatians 5:19-21
and the light of a lamp will not shine in you (the great city Babylon) any longer; and the voice of the bridegroom and bride will not be heard in you any longer; for your merchants were the great men of the earth, because all the nations (ethnos) were deceived by your sorcery (pharmakeia). Revelation 18:23
Chemotherapy is no walk in the park, yet many people subject themselves to its unpleasant effects in hopes of healing their cancer. Unfortunately, it could all be in vain as yet another concerning study has shown that chemotherapy can actually spread the very disease it is intended to stop.
In a study by the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, radiation and chemotherapy treatments that kill tumor cells were found to cause cancerous tumors to grow bigger and more prolific. In fact, the dying cancer cells that chemotherapy set into motion actually trigger the inflammation that causes tumors to grow more aggressively.
Senior author and Assistant Professor of Pathology Dr. Dipak Panigraphy said: “In this study we demonstrate that chemotherapy-generated debris from dead and dying tumor cells can stimulate tumor growth, which has pivotal implications for the treatment of cancer patients. Conventional cancer therapy designed to kill tumor cells is inherently a double-edged sword.”
Their findings come on the heels of another study published in Science Translational Medicine last year that found that chemotherapy can cause breast cancer cells to multiply.
A 2013 study into this issue yielded some very worrying findings. Published in Nature, that study also found that chemotherapy promotes the spread and growth of cancer cells by damaging healthy tissue around the tumors, and it took that one step further by finding that it caused cancer cells to develop resistance to chemotherapy as well, essentially turning them into “super” cancer cells. Much like superbugs, these cancer cells are resistant to the most aggressive types of chemotherapy available, making cancer far deadlier than before.
Chemotherapy outcomes worse than getting no treatment at all?
Some experts have pointed out that chemotherapy kills cancer sufferers more quickly than getting no treatment at all. For example, University of California, Berkeley, Medical Physics and Physiology Professor Dr. Hardin B. Jones said his research shows that people who refused chemotherapy treatment for cancer lived 12.5 years on average, while those who get these treatments averaged just three years of life. Essentially, refusing the conventional treatments for cancer causes patients to live four times longer than those who do get on board, on average. His findings were published in the journal Transactions of the New York Academy of Sciences.
In fact, the Pharma Death Clock shows that chemotherapy has killed more than 18 million people since the beginning of the year 2000, which is more people than those who have died from wars, suicide and terrorism combined.
Cancer treatment making some people rich while killing others
Yet, as Christina Sarich pointed out in The Waking Times, we continue to spend more than $107 billion per year on cancer treatment. The fact that this figure is projected to reach higher than $150 billion by the year 2020 tells you everything you need to know about the current state of medical cancer treatments.
A cancer diagnosis is devastating for patients and their loved ones, and dealing with all the decisions that must be made can be overwhelming. Many people have found success with natural treatments, whether it’s carrot juice or cannabis oil, but results vary so much depending on the individual that it really is difficult to make heads or tails of all the information out there. One thing we can be sure of, thanks to studies like these, is that chemotherapy is not always the best route to take, and it is well worth exploring other options so you can make the most informed decision about treatment as possible.

Since those who control allopathic medicine and its industry have bribed lawmakers to enact laws against medical freedoms and real sustainable medicine, millions of patients have been sacrificed each year on the altar of medical dogma, negligence, mistakes, arrogance, incompetence, willful intent to make huge profits at the expense of human life, racketeering, institutionalized recklessness, malfeasance, scientific reductionism and Industry propaganda, political corruption, judiciary abuses & deficiencies, health fraud, corporate crime and other causes of action. These are strong characterizations. But the evidence fully supports all of the above and sadly, any milder characterization would not be consistent with the raw facts. For the compelling evidence on all of this, see the Holistic Justice Institute site as well as this source via mouse click here.
Even both the editors in chief of Lancet and NEJM corroborated the fact that up to 50 percent of published material is spinned by the Industry and misleading. This representation of the flawed nature of the contemporary sick-care model does not mean that everything in the health-care system has gone awry, in emergency medicine and acute care (as opposed to chronic disease care), a few standards are ok and some can be lifesaving in emergencies when holistic medicine is not available.
But what is consternating to anyone who digs deep enough to understand the underlying workings of this ongoing sick-care model is that it operates almost exactly like a malignant tumor, first it hates anything and everything which is genuinely holistic, then, once it tricks the immune system and its sensors not to recognize its “intent” (DNA mission), it recruits ally “cells” (ie, fibroblasts, macrophages, dendritic cells, adhesive cells) etc and the body’s life resources for its invasive spread (metastases), after which it destroys almost everything on its path.
The only reasonable approach to this challenge is for patients to request multiple opinions, secure their legally enforceable informed consent right, examine all of the options with the forensic eyes of an experienced health detective, from as many different medical systems as possible, the limits and strength thereof and then to make an informed decision based on all of the hard evidence and not just on the ideology of “randomized double-blind clinical trials”, which are applicable to only patented synthetic drugs and the like. And as we know or should know, genuine restorative medicine is not a “pill for each ill”.
First Do No Harm (1997 – Meryl Streep, Fred Ward) – a very moving true story!
Thereafter, I will show that the American health-care system is legit in that it’s blessed by Congress. Then, i will proceed to demonstrate that most of Congress’ laws on health-care is unconstitutional and violative of international standards. Because Congess lawmaker dont care about the People’s fundamental rights and the Law of Nations, i will then prove, beyond any reasonable doubt, that most lawmakers are fraudsters in that they accepted corrupt bribery funds from vaccine and, inter alia, hard prescription drugs organizations (some of which are racketeering corporations) in exchange of which they voted statutes to remove Big Pharma Liability and promote the very drugs and toxins that are killing the People en mass. I will conclude this section with a complementary showing that the present US sick-care system thus is both a illegitimate and an assault against the People’s constitutional and international right to benefit from wellbeing and equal acess to meaningful health-care.
I will terminate this blog-article with History’s lessons on fascism as being put forth with misleading propaganda slogans like “business as usual” and “Pax Romana” by those unpatriotic individuals who control all four of the American Government’s Branches: executive, legislative, judiciary and media. (Section C).
Post Scriptum to the Above
Post Scription to description: Not all wealthy millionaires and billionaires and their corporations are corrupt, some are ethical, cool and benefial for the General Good. But in the Eyes of History and the People’s general interests, those who are guilty of participating in International Genocides and medical fraud must be unmasked and eventually prosecuted by the People’s Courts. I know these words can appear to be strong for most viewers, but the writer-blogger of this Analysis is both a healer and a litigator who has legally fought Big Tobacco, Big Medicine & Big Government for over twenty years, the experience of which convinces him that it’s time for a Big Change. Yes, still, twenty years after an abundance of litigation against “legal” medical fraudsters and their political and corporate lackeys, most of the sick-care system has only gotten worse. Thus the strong, but truthful and hopefully mobilizing words.
Once the fire of desire is ignited, the patient tends to want to throw away his or her chains, mountains of junk food, junk drugs, junk pettiness and junk everything so as to make room for Holistic excellence
